I love 🦍, fascinating creatures ~ I personally don't like chimpanzees & orangutans

Photos by @brentstirton | Great news from #Virunga #NationalPark, Democratic Republic of #Congo: It's reopening for #tourism on February 15. This is absolutely one of the most unique national parks in the world. For me it’s the best mountain #gorilla experience out there, not to mention the cheapest and the most authentic. The Kibumba #camp will reopen in the gorilla sector, and tourists will once again be able to see these incredible animals. When a magnificent silverback looks directly at you, it is unquestionably a life-changing experience for your comprehension of animal intelligence. #Nyiragongo, the largest active #volcano lake in the world, is also reopening. You can overnight up at 11,000 feet and watch dawn break over the rim. I don’t have the words to describe how primal and beautiful the view is over the surrounding park. Chigera Island in Lake Kivu is also reopening; this place offers a private island experience, allowing you to look back at Goma and the active volcano sector with a view like no other. This is truly a different #travel experience, and you are supporting people who do the some of the most difficult work in the #conservation world.
